A MAN is to stand trial accused of assaulting and controlling a woman and a young girl.

Shahram Iqtidar, 37, allegedly attacked the woman at his home in Glasgow’s Partick area between January 2010 and March 2019.

Iqtidar is also said to have assaulted the 14-year-old girl at the property on Beith Street last October.

Iqtidar also faces a host of accusations of causing the woman and the girl fear or alarm.

The charge states Iqtidar forced the pair to be present in the room while he smoked controlled drugs.

It further claims Iqtidar blew smoke into the face of the woman in the knowledge that he was aware she suffers from asthma.

Prosecutors state Iqtidar monitored her telephone communication, repeatedly threatened her with violence and threatened to kill her if she went to the police.

The charge goes on to say Iqtidar repeatedly punched, slapped and kicked her on the body as well as throwing objects at her.

He is also alleged to have stopped the woman from going out with her family and friends and threaten to kill himself if she left him.

The charge also states Iqtidar prevented the woman and the girl from going to dinner at a friend’s house before punching the woman on the head.

Iqtidar pleaded not guilty yesterday to the charges at a hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

A trial was set for February next year by Sheriff Johanna Johnston QC who continued Iqtidar’s bail meantime.
